Legendary Paisley and Blue Floral finishes debuted on the Telecaster in 1968, giving Fender’s first a vibrant blast of color for the next two years. Brief as that period was, both finishes endured the test of time and developed a cult following that made them highly sought after in the vintage community.
The Limited Edition Dual P90 Paisley Tele Thinline Relic celebrates those finishes with super-customized modifications and added P90 mojo. A hollow Thinline ash body with f-hole and parchment binding wears a worn-in relic lacquer finish for perfect resonance and refined tone. The one-piece 2A flame maple neck features a 10/’56 “V” profile, and the vintage compound-fingerboard radius (7.25”-9.5”) fingerboard has 21 narrow tall (6105) frets. Fender custom P90 pickups produce all the raw growl and output players expect from them, and angled three-way switching with Fat ’50s dual P90 wiring yields strong tone and seamless balance.
Other features include a parchment Caballo Tono pickguard, “sawed-off” Tele bridge with compensated RSD saddles for perfect intonation, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and vintage-style disc string tree. Also includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
